I worked womens retail as store manager and district manager for 20+ years, have since become stay at home mom. I typically don't step foot into stores, i get quickly frustrated with messy unorganized stores and when there not enough staff to handle lines at registers, i usually wool find a manager to ask to open a register but many times put my stuff down and leave so do most shopping on line... however i discovered this store about 5 years ago. The prices are incredible for top brands and styles they have. The store seems pretty well maintained and merchandised well to highlight new product. Yes at times, some of the team are not the nicest or helpful but I'm a shopper who will ask when i need assistance and they usually are very helpful. Not everyone going be on their A game all the time. And i have heard some pretty rude customers they have deal with. I like the store cause not crazy busy where i can take my time try on. There are few girls super nice one is a manager, always helps me... I had seen few negative reviews on here and rarely write one but wanted store get some credit for the things they do right. I was a fixer of underperforming stores so traveled all over, I'm from south originally so know lots different personalities on Brooklyn. Only constructive criticism i have is to open second register when line gets 3 or more and hard to get someone to come open a fitting room, but i usually find one open which im sure not best scenario from loss prevention standpoint. I've sent many friends there and even my friends from out state want to go there instead century!!
I went to marina clothing after being recommended by Jovani, a company that makes the dress I was in search of. Of all the stores in Brooklyn that sell their brand they recommended Marina clothing ... That spoke an obvious message they are the best . My experience was as follows .... I was greeted by Anna the owners daughter who was as pleasant as she was beautiful ... Within a second we clicked she showed my mom , mother in law & granny an insane selection of gowns in many price points ... We worked & worked trying on all her suggestions & 1 dress outshines the other !! To make a long story short .. No Walks out with 2 gowns ( 1 for nephew bar mitvah ) & 1fir me wedding ... Granny & mother in law leave with a dress each & I purchased a cocktail dress for my going away dress .... This whole experience was easy pleasant & after checking prices also very reasonable & if I saw a $10 diff on a dress she said she would match the price .. To sum it up Marina clothing is the go to boutique for an enormous selection of tasteful elegance in evening wear !! Definitely would recommend them !!!
We came highly recommended by a family friend, who shops in marina clothing for 30 yrs. we came in to buy 2 mob dresses & and a maid of honor gown .. The staff took one look at us & said ladies u will be divas!! After being very considerate towards our budget & modesty issues.. Marina & her daughter dresses us just fabulous . We had such a large selection that we were a little lost... But after trying on a lot of stunning gowns we decided on 2 jovani gowns & 1 Mac Dougal couture ! We were ecstatic & couldn't believe how easy & quick we were ready for my wedding !! I would definitely recommend this store to any one who needs any evening gowns ... These ladies are on point & super patient .... If u have the desire to purchase a stunning gown this place is the go to boutique !!! Thank you marina !!!
